Amelia Earhart’s Plane May Have Been Found?

On May 21, 1937, a woman by the name of Amelia Earhart embarked on a journey to be the first woman pilot to fly across the world. Fred Noonan was her navigator and, together, they started their journey in Oakland, California. They never made it back – her last words on the radio were logged at 8:43 am on July 2, 1937 when she said, “we are on the line 157-337 flying north and south.” Earlier, she had spoken words that no one wants to hear saying, “we are on you but cannot see you.” And, with that, that was the last time she was seen or heard from ever again.

Tony Romeo, a pilot and a former US Air Force intelligence officer who sold all his commercial properties to pay for his search, told The Wall Street Journal he thinks he found part of Earhart’s plane resting on the ocean floor.

Three years after she was last heard on the radio, scientists found human remains said to be Amelia Earhart on Nikumaroro Island in the western Pacific Ocean. These discoveries were groundbreaking – people tried to piece together the clues to find other remains or even the plane. Sadly, there was no luck and the search for the plane ended as no other evidence was found.

A plane-shaped mass on the Pacific floor may be a vital clue to solve the decades-old mystery surrounding trailblazing aviator Amelia Earhart, who vanished in 1937.



Until now. A group of ocean explorers by the name “Deep Sea Vision” leaked what they say to be Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed 10-E Electra. They found the plane intact “more than 5,200 square miles of ocean floor,” Deep Sea Vison stated.

Romeo says that his sonar image of an aircraft-shaped object in the Pacific Ocean may well be Earhart’s Lockheed 10-E Electra.

Now, we have evidence of a plane crash that looks to be Earhart’s. But is it true? Is it really hers? While it is not confirmed, many are hoping it to be. There is much speculation that the Bermuda Triangle had something to do with Earhart’s disappearance but that remains a theory.

All and all, Deep Sea Vision found a plane. Whether or not is that of the great Amelia Earheart is to be determined.
